TIA and Mini Stroke Clinic

The TIA Clinic is a one stop, multi-disciplinary, rapid access service for patients with Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA or mini-stroke)

The TIA and Mini Stroke Clinic is a one stop, multi-disciplinary, rapid access service for patients with Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA or mini-stroke) providing secondary prevention to reduce the incidence of stroke and unnecessary acute hospital admissions.

Clinics are held 7 days a week, rotating throughout the County at various venues, and are staffed by a Consultant, Stroke Nurse, Vascular Technician and Clinic Nurse. Referrals are triaged on receipt and if assessed as ‘high risk’ we aim to see the patient within 24 hours.

Following TIA Clinic the local Stroke Specialist Nurse Team will be informed of patient’s diagnosed with TIA or Stroke and will arrange a follow-up appointment either at home or in clinic according to the patient’s clinical needs.
